Isolated cortical venous thrombosis
July 01, 2009
A 38-year-old Chinese man presented after five days of sharp, continuous new-onset occipital headaches. Symptoms were only partially relieved by analgesics. No fever, nausea, vomiting, photophobia, or phonophobia was observed, but two short episodes of jerking of the left upper extremity without generalization or change in consciousness were recorded.
